News and Reviews for this Show

August 21, 2022    Ed Fringe Review

Daniel Muggleton: Oh More Mr White Guy is a slick and smooth example of a comedian clearly doing what they love. Part of the free fringe, pay what you can festival, Muggleton brings a casual flare to the festival: Daniel is outside by audiences while they are queuing, drinking water as they enter the venue and even closes his own door. He explains to the crowd that he does not have a producer or an agent – unusual for someone who appears so experienced and confident as a performer.

Muggleton is Australian – dressed in a matching ‘flammable’ Adidas tracksuit, an outfit which is addressed immediately: he is extremely self-aware and thus has a lot of potential as a performer. He is self-deprecating, and his audience interaction is frequent, natural and always adds to the show on the whole, rather than detracting from it, as is so often the case in stand up – he has quick responses and great use of eye contact, demonstrating his experience as a performer in this light and fun production, which also addresses some key issues in a dark, yet truthful and honest way.

He uses dry humour to address a range of topics – from British colonialism to genocide in China. These wide-ranging jokes are captioned on the TV that sits behind him, mocking the audience by claiming they are doing a ‘heterosexual, knowledgeable laugh’. Muggleton’s show is not for the sensitive or faint-hearted: he tows the line between what is politically correct and acceptable in our society, and what is not. It verges on being offensive, while successfully remaining inoffensive and relatable throughout. He is a really likeable person with astute observations, who is really good at their job—he is savage to some audience members, does Fringe jokes, kid jokes, Australian jokes (which sometimes do not hit quite as well as I assume they would in Australia). There is something in this show for everyone.

The audience loved this show, which pushes the line of what is acceptable within comedy, while remaining an entertaining and likeable production. Click Here For Review
